The National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA) is at the forefront of efforts to advance equality and justice in the American workplace through federal legislation and public policy. Since NELA's inception, we have lobbied and provided technical assistance to Congress on scores of federal legislation that bring us closer to achieving our mission.

Legislative & Public Policy Priorities

In fulfilling our mission, NELA has adopted the following federal legislative and public policy priorities:
  • Safeguarding workers' recoveries for illegal workplace violations from unfair taxation.
  • Keeping the courthouse doors open by fighting against forced arbitration of workplace disputes, and preserving the right to a jury for working people.
  • Ensuring that independent and fair-minded individuals who are faithful to America's promise of equal justice under law are appointed to the federal bench.
  • Protecting retirement, health and disability benefits earned by workers and their families.
  • Enhancing workplace protections on the basis of age, sexual orientation and gender identity.
  • Strengthening protections against unlawful discrimination for federal employees.
  • Advocating for fair wage, hour, and leave standards; protecting those who expose employer abuse, fraud, and waste; and challenging at-will employment.

Cultivating The Next Generation Of Employee Rights Advocates

NELA offers opportunities for dynamic interns (undergraduate and/or law students) to assist with important projects related to NELA’s core mission of advancing employee rights and serving lawyers who advocate for equality and justice in the American workplace. Internships are available for every academic term, including summers. NELA requires that prospective interns simultaneously participate in for-credit academic programs. How To Apply

NELA's Grassroots Advocacy Program

NELA's most important asset is its membership. To leverage our voices, we have created NELA's Grassroots Advocacy Team (GAT) to involve NELA members, Affiliate leaders, and Affiliate members in our legislative and public policy initiatives.
